KEITH:
Testing, testing.

One, two. One, two.

Okay, that's good.

Ready, Mom?

Okay, how do you

want me to sit?

Any way you want.

I'm just glad you're

finally doing this.

All right. Go ahead. Start.

Great. So, why...

You're just gonna

ask me questions, right?

Hence the "why."

All right.

I guess I better be

careful answering

if this is gonna be

how you remember me.

STEWARDESS:
Mr. Bergman?

Mr. Bergman?

Your coffee.

Oh, right.

Thanks.

Is it okay?

Mmm.

You'd hardly know

it was instant.

Hey.

Hey.

When are the boys coming?

Uh, Barry's flying

the redeye tonight,

and Matthew's driving,

so I guess two days.

And, uh,

he's not alone.

WOMAN ON PA:

Welcome to Wilmington

International Airport.

Oh, great.

For your security,

do not leave...

How's she doing?

Sick. In pain.

She nods off a lot.

You better start reading.

Mmm.

There's an

instruction manual?

You're gonna

wanna read it.

Well, just too bad

nobody ever comes back

and tells these guys

if they got it right.

That's me.

Holy shit!

Well, if we study

the literature,

maybe we can grow

from this experience.

Absolutely. Yeah.

I own the whole

Good Tragedy series.

Enjoy your

Parasitic Infection,

Making the Most of Incest,

that was a good one.

I especially enjoyed

Congratulations!

Your Child's an Addict.

Will you just read it?

Oh, give me a break, Em.

This whole thing sucks.

Yeah, it does.

And I've been down here

with Mom and Jim

all by myself all week

watching it happen.

And I don't have

anyone else to talk to,

and so I went

to a bookstore.

Sorry.

Yeah, I know you've been

working really hard, okay?

And I will read the book.

Okay.

They must have been

happy to see you.

Yeah, they are.

I mean, there's only

the two of them,

and they really

need the help.

No, I meant the bookstore.

F*ck you, Keith.

MAN ON TV:

This is News 6 at 11:00.

Southeastern North Carolina's

most watched 11:
00 newscast.

Another missing persons

case tonight with

a Blaine County connection.

EMILY:
Mom?

Keith's here.

Hi, Mom.

Hi, honey.

Glad you could come.

I had to get

a few things settled.

Take care of a little

business, remember?

Yes, I remember.

You're my oldest son,

the one who called me

every day this week.

Yeah, I was just...

I'm dying, not senile.

Yes, Mother.

Don't "Yes, Mother" me.

Hand me the clicker.

Thanks.

All right.

Go get settled.

KEITH:
Why did you fire

your first oncologist?

You wanna know that

for posterity?

I'm a trained

film professional.

I'll ask the questions,

you answer them, okay?

Well, when I asked him

how I was gonna die,

he said my intestines

would clog up

and I'd puke myself to death.

Which turns out to be true.

But I figured,

for $275 a visit,

I deserved a little better

bedside manner than that.

I'll be out for

the 9:
30 conference call

this morning,

but I'll be available

on my cell.

Leave the "B" calls

on voicemail.

Tell Swisher I need her

Cisco report by 3:30,

that's 3:
30 p.m. my time,

by email,

and I'll call you

if I think of anything else.

I'll be back as soon

as I can. Later.

You forgot to tell them

how to wipe their asses.

So, is it front to back

or back to front?

Either way is fine.

I like employees to have

a little autonomy.

Do Mom and Jim have DSL?

No.

No.

Well, listen,

I'll stay as long as I can,

but I'm really busy.

What time is it?

On the West Coast,

it's 5:
45 a.m.

Up and at 'em, tiger.

Thanks for waking me.

Mmm-hmm.

You see Mom?

Not yet.

In that case,

thanks for waking me first.

I'll see her.

I'll see her.

I'm just waiting,
